First time to Mexico for me and my bride. Don't know hardly any Spanish. Watch out when you get off the plane and need a cab, they'll swarm you. Don't go for the "great deal" unless you want to go to some sales pitch later on. To much worry about whether they would follow through with their end of the bargain, and then a waste of time when you have to go here the "not-a-time-share time" share presentation. Moving on.....
if your driver takes the shortcut to Playa Larga, don't worry, the trash dissipates. Once your driving down the road near the beach, your mind will be set more at ease. Arriving at the Casa Kau Kan, thing got better. Our luggage was taken from us by a old gentlemen who came from across the street. Antonio and Carlos took over from there, talking our luggage to our room, getting us a drink, letting us relax by the pool. Then they showed us to a room that was no the honeymoon suite that we booked.....rrrrrr. After a couple minutes of broken-english conversation, the situation was rectified. We got the poolside honeymoon suite with in-room infinite pool and good AC. It was huge! Firm bed, lots of space. I recommend this suite over the oceanview suite, as it is newer and the windows are sealed, not allowing those bloodthirsty bugs in at night.
We only stayed for two days, as we knew that it was secluded, and we booked the rest of our week in Ixtapa. That way we got the best of both worlds! For those that didn't realize how secluded it was, oops! next time do some more research.
Food there was good. Antonio and Carlos are wonderful, very friendly and attentive. The Kau Kan restaurant was great. Antonio arranged for a cab. Cabbie was very pleasant. Took us downtown, picked us up when and where he said he would, made good recommendations to us, kept our shopping bags safe, and dropped us and picked us up from Kau Kan right on time. You can't get that kind of service for 30 dollars (including tip) in the US. The Kau Kan restaurant was superb. Carlos had made reservations for us, getting us a great table on the terrace overlooking the bay. We got a double bonus as we saw a sunset and rainbow while dining. It was a little slice of heaven....
Overall, wonderful experience, and will certainly be going back.
